These are cheat codes that alter the game's internal FPS. Internal FPS and output frame rate shouldn't be confused with each other, see Frames_per_second page for more information.

60 FPS

These are often game-specific and very prone to bugs considering many of the games weren't made with 60 FPS in mind. Notably, the walking speed and animations might play at double speed, which can cause some gameplay problems like for example making a mission impossible to beat in Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker because the enemies are too fast.

Xbox 360

Use these patches for unlocking internal framerate limit.

Nintendo 64

To be used with the 1964 Ultrafast, which includes CPU Overclocking. That alone can cause a speedup in a select few games like GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Mario Kart 64 (partially: MP, some stages), Carmageddon, and San Francisco Rush games (partially: MP).

Originally 20 FPS (17 in PAL, 30 in 3DS version).
Some animations are still awkward or too quick.

Some other games have 60 FPS patches or codes too. 60fps cheats topic on pj64-emu.com


Needs some versions of Dolphin. The overclocking can increase the framerate of games with Vsync, variable FPS, or slowdowns in the real console.

There was an option to overclock the GPU (Vbeam speed hack) to get 60fps in Pikmin 1 and 2, but it was removed by Dolphin team in recent builds. The VBeam hack was axed by the devs over accuracy concerns and wanting 60 FPS hacks to run on real hardware or something. You'll have to track down those versions then.

  • Super Mario Sunshine:

This Gecko code is Region-Free which means it works with any version of the game, but it comes with some side effects. It makes cutscenes run very slowly on the North American version of the game, causes falling stars to appear in the top corners and top middle of the screen, and makes the blue/red coins in Gelato Beach near impossible to get. So it's better to use version specific codes listed underneath this one.

  • Pikmin: Enter in one of these codes as a Gecko code. Make sure you use the right code associated with your game region.

Use this for 1.1 NTSC-U version of the game:

  • Pikmin 2: You can use this Gecko code to get this game running at 60 FPS with an added side effect of breaking cut-scenes. Thankfully, the code allows you to switch back to 30 FPS at any time by using the D-Pad on your controller. A right-press on the D-pad toggles 60 FPS, while a left-press on the D-pad reverts back to 30 FPS.

You can swap the left and right presses by switching 0002 and 0001 in the code.

Wii U

Use these packs for FPS++.

Nintendo Switch

60 FPS cheats can be used with Ryujinx and yuzu. Generally, cheats are more likely to work with Ryujinx as it has a more accurate filesystem implementation. Compared to other consoles, 60 FPS cheats for Nintendo Switch games have less issues than older consoles as game speed is less likely to be tied to framerate, especially for third-party games. Uncapping the framerate in yuzu or Ryujinx and limiting the game speed to 200% can also be used as an alternative for 60FPS for some games instead of using cheats.

A database of cheats can be found on GitHub. Also Some games have specific 60FPS patches made by the theboy181.
Yuzu has a dedicated page named "Switch Mods" for 60FPS mods.

Also you can use SwitchEmuModDownloader or TOTK Optimizer.



PlayStation 60FPS Cheats datasheet

With the help of DuckStation and Beetle PSX HW 's CPU and GTE overclock settings, you should be able to hit a solid 60FPS in a lot of these titles.

PlayStation 2

todo: These (formatted, backup in case it goes down again)
repo: PCSX2 patches

  • Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence NTSC-U (Source):
gametitle=Metal Gear Solid 3 - Subsistence Disc 1 (Limited Edition, SLUS-21359)
comment=Force 60 FPS
gametitle=Metal Gear Solid 3 - Subsistence Disc 1 (Limited Edition, SLUS-21359)
comment=Force 30 FPS

Needs at least 20% overclock on EE. Cutscenes need to have 30 FPS enabled back to be less demanding.

PlayStation Portable

Some games offered the option in-game to increase the framerate on later PSP models, like notably all versions of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, and Tales of Destiny 2 (all other Tales ports were downgraded to run at 30 FPS sadly).

A lot of PSP games have codes to increase their framerate almost without any negative effect for the majority (the ones that have bugs with 60 FPS are marked with "b"), and a CWCheat list can be found here. One example:

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep (Japan, US/PAL, Japan Final Mix)
_C1 Force 60 FPS Mode
_L 0x21725EC8 0x00000000

PlayStation Vita

Collection of patches for VitaGrafix - a taiHEN plugin that allows you to change resolution and FPS cap of some of the PlayStation Vita games.

PlayStation 3

There are multiple FPS and other patches created by community listed on the RPCS3 Official Wiki.

30 FPS

While this trick can somewhat detract from the experience in games that run natively at 60 FPS, it can be very useful for games emulated on underpowered devices, such as smartphones or old desktop computers.

  • God of War: Chains of Olympus/God of War: Ghost of Sparta

This cheat needs PPSSPP version 1.13 or up and can be activated by editing the compat.ini file which is in the /assets/compat.ini folder. The location of this folder will depend on the system used, on Windows it will be where PPSSPP is installed, on Android it should be in the /Android/data/org.ppsspp.ppsspp/ folder, etc. With the file open in a text editor, search for [GoWFramerateHack30] and uncomment (remove the #) from the GameID you use (don't uncomment the other lines, just the God of War GameIDs), it should look like this:
